The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Ghostbusters'

18 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Every summer has a dominant blockbuster, but it’s not every year that the season’s biggest movie inspires a legitimate mania.

7 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences named the 19 achievements that will be celebrated by the Academy at the Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation Saturday, Feb. 15.

The awards will be presented separately from the Oscars, and are, indeed, awarded through a different process. The technologies honored do not need to have been invented in the year 2013 to win, rather, they need to have been proven to be vital contributions to filmmaking.

“This year’s honorees have in a myriad of ways enabled today’s moviegoing experience. Their efforts have advanced not only the art and science of motion pictures, but the work of countless global industries,” proclaimed Richard Edlund, the Scientific and Technical Awards Committee Chair, himself an Oscar-winner for his work in visual effects.

Here is the entire list as presented in the press official Academy press release:
